Keep warm during the winter storm

Posted: Updated:

Staying warm is not as easy as it sounds. There is definitely a lot more to it than just a blanket and heavy jacket. It basically comes down to a science and many things contribute to upping your body heat.

Hydration plays a huge part, as we lose moisture constantly. Drink plenty of water and consider sipping on these hot drinks:

  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Hot chocolate
  • Mulled wine


Ok, so maybe those were pretty obvious; but did you know these foods help keep you warm longer:

  • Brown rice
  • Quinoa
  • Oats
  • Barley
  • Buckweat


These spices do a good job of heating things up:

  • Ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • Cumin
  • Coriander
  • Paprika
  • Pepper
